Notes on In-House Affinity Photo Video Tutorials

Recommended Posts

Phew. I've just ploughed through the full set of in-house AP video tutorials, done by the most excellent James Ritson. To help me learn and provide a reference, I made personal notes along the way. Here they are, complete with links to each video, in case they may be of help for you. No guarantees and all that.

 

Update 25 Mar 17: File with notes on change up to 23 March added.

Update 30 Mar 17: File with notes on change up to 29 March added.

That's a lot of hard work! I can't imagine much time you must have put into this - very handy for users, thank you. How many times did you fall asleep listening to me drone on?  ;)

Thanks, folks. Good to hear you like my notes.

 

I know that writing helps fix things in my brain (part of my learning style), so other notes may follow. I also write for a living these days (http://changingminds.org).

Thank you for sharing these notes, dmstraker. They're a great addition to the AP Manual and the videos.

 

Your notes are also a fine tribute to the James Ritson videos that, in my view, are the best set of tutorial videos for any image-processing program that I've used. For their concision, thoughtful focus, broad topic coverage and low-key tone I rate them higher than even the polished performances of Julianne Kost on Adobe's products.

 

I guess, since you've apparently watched and paid attention to all of them, you must like them too  :).

Yes indeed. A key part of selling a product is in training users, who then like the product more and tell their friends. Skilled users also showcase the product well. James does an excellent job of producing first-rate, clear and concise videos.

Many, many thanks for this, talk about a labour of love.

 

And I heartily concur with all the comments about the quality of the tutorials, informative, non-patronising and very useful.
